Street racing is almost as old as the car itself. Just like how different countries have different car cultures that spawn different cars and different custom scenes, every country does street racing a little different. In the United States, after World War II, with its abundance of unused runways and dry lake beds, drag races and land speed runs became the model for the street racers, clocking in fast quarter miles at industrial parks and country roads. Likewise, Japan, with its vibrant car culture and geography, has developed its own street racing culture that's as dynamic as it is unique. Like anything else, it's a confluence of international influences, domestic trends, and its own geography that has given it the uniquely Japanese flavor it has today. Small Japanese sports cars take to tinkering, and like the jalopies and 'secretary' cars that received hot engine upgrades in days past, the Japanese car has become a tuner favorite.
